SWITCH

SWITCH ("School Wellness Integration Targeting Child Health") is an innovative school wellness initiative designed to support and enhance school wellness programming. Through SWITCH, schools can help students to "Switch what they Do, View, and Chew!" SWITCH is managed by an interdisciplinary research team in partnership with the 4-H Youth Development Program through Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. SWITCH’s partnership with the Iowa Heart Center Foundation provides financial support for program coordination and evaluation efforts and is fostering the creation of additional heart health education components to enhance SWITCH. SWITCH reaches young people in 4th-8th grades.
